We’ve developed the Healthcare Leadership Model to help you become a better leader in your day-to-day role. You don’t have to be in a clinical or service setting to use it. And it doesn’t matter whether you work in a team of five or are responsible for 5,000, you can benefit by discovering and exploring your own leadership behaviours.
The Healthcare Leadership Model is useful for everyone because it describes the things you can see leaders doing at work and demonstrates how you can develop as a leader – even if you’re not in a formal leadership role.
The model is made up of nine leadership dimensions, which you can explore in your own time, at your own pace. You’ll find brief descriptions of each dimension – why it is important and ‘what it is not’ – so that you can fully understand it in relation to your role.
Once you’ve explored the dimensions, you may want to undertake the free self assessment tool, which helps you to assess your leadership behaviours and more fully understand your leadership development. A 360 degree feedback tool is also available to help give you insight into other people’s perceptions of your leadership abilities and behaviour.
Organisations around the country are using the Healthcare Leadership Model online tools. Find out more by exploring the videos below. Additional resources to help organisations are also available from the Development Suggestion Guide section.
